Singapore Telecommunications Report Q1 2013

No. of pages: 99

Singapore's telecommunications industry has outperformed many of its regional peers with strong adoption of the latest products and services. Partially due to the country's small landmass and population size, the telecoms market has rapidly grown to a stage where it is approaching saturation. Next generation technologies, both mobile and fixed, are therefore the next step in fostering new developments and revenue streams, and industry players - the regulator and operators - have rightly moved in that direction.

Key Data:


  • The forecast scenarios for Singapore's mobile, fixed-line and internet markets as well as operators' ARPUs have been extended to 2017.

  • In spite of the launch of next generation LTE services, we continue to forecast operators' ARPUs to trend lower due to competition; we predict the market average to reach SGD46 in 2017.

  • We expect the number of 3G/4G phone subscribers in Singapore to reach 7.198mn in 2017, representing 81.6% of the total mobile market of 8.815mn subscribers.

  • Australia Telecommunications Report Q3 2016
    Published: 13-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: BMI has made some minor forecast revisions in our latest Australian telecommunications market Q3 2016 report update. We hold the view that the 3G/4G uptake will intensify further. Additionally, we believe that the mobile market is mature and has little prospects for new organic subscriber driven growth. Our core view remains that market growth will derive from migrating existing subscribers onto high-value, advanced data packages. Telecom operators are aggressiv......
  • Cote d'Ivoire Telecommunications Report Q3 2016
    Published: 13-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: We maintain our view that the telecommunications market in Côte d'Ivoire is in a state of flux, with consolidation and new technologies on the horizon. New LTE licenses have been awarded and the government aims to consolidate the smaller players into a viable operator capable of competing with market leaders Orange, MTN and Maroc Telecom. The regulator is wary of such a move, but the strong macroeconomic outlook as well as demand for advanced services such as mo......

    Published: 13-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: The Danish telecommunications sector will experience limited growth over our forecast period due to the saturated nature of the market. Growth in mobile market subscriptions will stagnate as operators focus on offering additional services for existing customers, while fierce competition will continue to drive ARPUs downwards. The fixed-line segment offers some room for growth, with operators moving towards advanced services, such as fibre, to regain market share......

    BMI View: An elusive agreement between Egypt's three mobile operators and the government has delayed the implementation of a unified licensing framework that would enable Telecom Egypt to launch MVNO services and allow the mobile operators to expand into the wireline market. Egypt's authorities and the country's telecoms operators are pushing to increase the uptake and quality of broadband services in the country. In November the Ministry of Communications & Information......

In November 2015, the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications announ......
  • Sierra Leone Telecommunications Report 2016
    Published: 13-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    BMI View: The Sierra Leone mobile market falls far behind its regional peers in terms of mobile market penetration and is expected to remain so over the course of our forecast period. Based on the latest reports from Orange - which is acquiring Airtel's local unit - and Africell, we estimate there were around 4.6mn mobile subscriptions at the end of 2015. Nevertheless, given the lack of regularly reported market data and clear methodologies, we highlight that these figure......
